Ceremony, Brunch, and than what?

Recommended Posts

So we are planning on a late morning cerermony, and than a brunch to follow. We would love to plan something in the evening as well. Like a sunset party or something similar to that.


I wonder if anyone had any suggestions. We are getting married in Florida, so its not an AI type thing. We were trying to steer away from a reception due to budget restraints. Is it possible to organize something with not breaking into our budget to much?

I'm getting married in Florida too! Our ceremony is at 10 am, then after pictures we will go out for lunch. What about planning some type of group activity that you and your guests could do together. Or maybe even if your hotel hosts cocktail hour by the pool meet up with your guests there. (we may do this).


Also I think it would be perfectly fine also if you decided to not do anything after the brunch as well. That way guests can have some time to enjoy their vacation. Just an idea!

What about having an "informal" reception/cocktail hour? You could set up hors d'oeuvres and serve pitchers of drinks both alcoholic and non. That's a way to cut costs down..just offer a couple of different kinds of each and let guests help themselves.


It would help knowing the type of ceremony/setting you're going to be having. I absolutely think you can put something affordable together without spending much. I'm a budget bride myself and refuse to spend thousands on anything that can be done for less.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
